Regenerative Medicine Stem Cell Therapies For Osteoarthritis
Regenerative Medicine to treat Osteoarthritis
In the past, people relied on steroid injections and other strong medications to treat OA. However, they were not without a host of adverse side effects. For example, steroid injections were found to compromise the body’s immune system and ability to heal. Strong prescription drugs, like opiates, have caused physical dependence and addiction. Neither have been found to make the condition better; they only mask the symptoms by temporarily relieving pain.
The American Regenerative Medicine Institute offers a successful and long lasting alternative to the above. By providing stem cell injections directly to affected areas, we have seen unsurpassed progress in patients who were unresponsive to other treatments.
What is Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis, also known as OA, is a chronic condition and degenerative joint disease. It is one of the most common chronic conditions, affecting millions of people in the United States. When the cartilage and cushion between joints in the bones breaks down, the joints experience pain, swelling, and stiffness. While OA can occur in any joint in the body, the most common areas are the joints in your hands, knees, shoulders, hips, and back. Other symptoms from OA include joint tenderness, a loss in joint flexibility, and bone spurs. Osteoarthritis has been linked to excessive weight, overuse injuries, and genetic risk factors. OA is also linked to occupational stress, old age, and sex (women are more likely to develop OA than men). Because OA is degenerative, the condition worsens over time. The pain and stiffness in the joints can become extreme enough to make daily tasks difficult. This can cause people to retire prematurely and lose their independence.
